Media is one of our core practice areas and our international teams are recognised as some of the best lawyers in the business. We work with traditional media companies as well as cutting-edge companies looking to innovate and disrupt. For example, we work with traditional TV broadcasters and platforms but we also advise companies launching cross-platform services or who are looking to produce content or make content available for the first time.
Our work in digital media, together with the in-house experience of many of our team, gives us an intimate knowledge of this ever-evolving market. We understand the issues affecting the industry and know how to resolve them. We can quickly focus on what really matters and identify a solution.
We make sure we’re at the forefront of industry developments so we can influence change and advise clients on what’s on the horizon. We have a deep knowledge of the Digital Single Market and how it will impact media businesses.
